Ethnography of on-line role-playing games

The Flea is mulling over the fall/winter teaching schedule and such details as whether there is a good applied anthropology reader out there or if I shall have to put together a course-kit. The big mystery remains how to structure my "digital media and culture" course. The blogosphere will take centre-stage and I aim to bore them to tears with differences between semantic and analog forms of logic. A course on ethnography and on-line role-playing games suggests an alternative approach. Get them to sign up for Everquest and do on-line field research for a few months! I sometimes wonder how it is I get paid to do what I do.
